Review – Transformers: Lost Light #4

Rodimus’ crew is marooned in a parallel universe where the bad guys are still in control and about to destroy anybody who isn’t “useful.” In the regular universe the “lucky” folks are just getting their feelings eviscerated, if they’re not getting literally eviscerated. So, a typical Wednesday then?

See below for preview pages and a review of Transformers: Lost Light #4.

(Also, see the end of the review for the preview pages to Till All Are One #8.)

Review: Summer in Orcus

Review: Summer in Orcus

1. Don’t worry about things that you cannot fix.

2. Antelope women are not to be trusted.

3. You cannot change essential nature with magic.

– Instructions in a stained-glass window, written on a book carried by a saint wearing purple sneakers

Eleven-year-old Summer dreams of adventure…but if she’s honest about it her idea of “adventure” involves a little freedom from her over-protective mother. It would be nice to do things like go to camp, or ride a Ferris Wheel, or maybe just take a bath without someone checking every five minutes to make sure she isn’t drowning. She certainly never planned to step through a magic portal and wind up all on her own in a strange new world with a weasel on her shoulder, but then who does?

Starting life as an online serial, T. Kingfisher’s latest book Summer in Orcus dives headfirst into a land of bird aristocrats, manticore cheese, snail marketplaces, and a masked warlord serving the mysterious Queen-In-Chains. It all starts when Summer has a chance meeting with Baba Yaga, who sends her on a journey to find her Heart’s Desire.

It might have been helpful if Baba Yaga had told her what that is.

WonderCon 2017 – So many panels, so little time

WonderCon 2017 – So many panels, so little time

It’s that time again, time to figure out how I’m going to get to all the WonderCon panels I want to see and still find time to walk the sales floor and, I don’t know, eat and sleep at some point. Especially since several panels on my list are going on at the same time. Anybody with a spare Time Turner or TARDIS, please shout out in the comments.

See below for a rundown of the WonderCon 2017 panels that caught my eye.

Review – Power Rangers

By guest columnist k.e.n.n.y.h.

“…this is a bad idea right?”
“The worst.”

Surprisingly not really – that’s right. Power Rangers are back for all you kiddies from the nineties (and everyone else who’s wondering what the hell all of this is.) Welcome to the re-imagining of the original American knock-off of Japanese Super Sentai (has no bearing on the movie, but we’re all about the facts here.) The cult classic has a reboot with a new look, a new feel, and undoubtedly a new merchandise range.

Review – Life

Review – Life

So, when I was a kid I always wanted to be an astronaut. Even though I was great at math and science I was lazy, so here I am just writing about a space movie. When I saw the preview for Life I just knew I had to see it. Now that I’ve seen this movie let me just say that I never, ever want to go to space. Ever.

Binary System Podcast #75 – WTNV episode 104 “The Hierarchy of Angels”

This week the twins recap the latest episode of Night Vale and talk about how angels can’t have building permits and dragons can’t practice law. (Apparently you can’t just tell somebody that the City said it was okay for you to build a roller coaster. Even if you spell all the words right.)

After that Kathryn gave us a breakdown of NC Comicon: Oak City, and Elizabeth gave us her picks for Amazon’s “Pilot Season.”
